The novel alludes to the role on her personal life played by the unprecedented bloodshed in the entire human history during the exodus of people from the newly created Pakistan to India, which was the result of the tragic partition of the country that accompanied independence from the British rule in August 1947. India’s non-violent freedom-struggle led by Mahatma Gandhi brought to the forefront many great national leaders. Among them, Sardar Patel, hailing from the state of Gujarat and free India’s first Home Minister, was aptly called the ‘Iron-Man of India’ – he is credited for a courageous and tactful unification of 565 princely states into the new Indian Republic. Narendra Modi, the present-day Chief Minister of Gujarat, is depicted in this novel as kind of a reincarnation of Patel, as he conducts a campaign as one of the prime ministerial candidate for the national election to be held in 2014. Modi lays bare the British-style divide-and-rule policy, vote-bank policy, and many other scandals of corruption under the presently ruling Congress Party.
